Starr's Savory Meatballs

Recipe by  

"This is my version of meatballs based on experimentation from several different recipes, including my mother's. I like to use these in spaghetti sauce, of course, but they're also delicious in my meatball subs. You can double or triple the recipe - sky's the limit! - and freeze."

  2. Mix together the ground beef, onion, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, eggs, garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until just combined. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions, then roll each of those portions into 4 meatballs. Arrange the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 15 to 20 minutes.

Out of dry bread crumbs at the moment, I used crushed garlic croutons instead. I made no other changes. GREAT meatballs. Excellent for meatball sandwiches.

These were good, but a bit bland. Next time I might try 1 lb of ground beef and 1 lb of ground sausage. I also used a 2" ice cream scoop to divide the beef.

These were so good. I forgot to put the bread crumbs in. They were still really good, but fell apart when we reheated them. Also made them much smaller

Fabulous as is!! I did make my meatballs bite size since that is how my family likes them. At that size, I only cooked them 6 minutes and that seemed about right (less or more depending on if you like to see a little red or if you like crispy mearballs). Thanks for a great recipe, my new "go to" recipe!

Starr's Savory Meatballs Haiku: "These were pretty good! Ate them with spaghetti squash. (I made mine smaller.)" I followed the recipe exactly as written, only making my meatballs smaller than indicated in the directions (bout ping-pong ball size.) Tried them right from the oven (tasty, but not mind-blowing - a good, basic meatball), then let them simmer in sauce for a little while b4 serving over a spaghetti squash. The whole family declared them wonderful, so we gotta give props to Starr for her easy meatball recipe.

I made these for a Christmas party and they were delicious! I added a half pound of sausage because I had some to use up. These will be my go-to homemade meatball from now on! Thanks Superstarr!

These were great and EASY! I took others' suggestions and made mini meatballs about 1 1/2 inch diameter. They were awesome and baked at 425 for 15 minutes (hot oven). Thanks, Starr, these are ex-L-ent!
